Delivered, Live - the brand new streaming festival - kicked off in a big way last night with performances from some of Australia's finest musicians and comedians.
Hosted by Henry Wagons and his many incredible jackets, the evening saw artists Alex Lahey, Ali Barter, Even, CW Stoneking, Bob Evans and Teeny Tiny Stevies perform fan favourite tracks.
There were also appearances from comedians Sami Shah, Double Denim and more, and interviews with psychologist Franco Greco throughout the festival.
What makes Delivered, Live different from other events is that the Victorian Government have partnered with Handshake Agency for the project which came together in a bid to support the local music industry and regional communities.

Funds raised from the event will go to artists, venues and crew to help support them through the COVID-19 outbreak.
“What we’re trying to do is, as best as possible, make them real gigs," Handshake Agency's Leigh Treweek said of Delivered, Live earlier this week.
"You’ll be able to see it live on Saturday night and it then goes offline. We’ll pre-screen it on Sunday but then it’s gone for good. You’re not just going to be able to log back on and watch it on the artist’s Facebook. So, certainly, that’s a huge part of it - to try and recreate the gig environment."
Delivered, Live will air again today from 2pm, head to the Delivered, Live website for all the info.
